The Apple industrial design team has been nominated in the sixth annual Wired Rave awards for its work on the iPod shuffle and iMac G5. Apple CEO Steve Jobs is nominated in the Business Leader category.
Elizabeth Hitchcock of iPodJewelry.com has unveiled her first creation for the iPod shuffle. The design uses freshwater pearl and wire. Pricing is not yet available.
Following similar comments by Creative’s CEO, the chief executive of iRiver says he is surprised by features of the iPod shuffle and that it’s “not a competitor to an iRiver product because we have more features and focus on the premium area.”
